Hi Everyone! My name is Annie and I am new to the RAGOM Family as of April 6th. I came in with my sister Scout 14-092 and brother Vinnie 14-094 and 5 other adult dogs. It was a long travel day, but once we arrived, we were sure ready to stretch out legs! Here I am with Scout.
Us 3 youngsters were born on January 18th, so that makes us just over 12 weeks old now. My first 10 days here have been filled with a lot of activity to say the least.
First stop was the vet to give me the good ol' once-over. Doc says I am a cutie pa-tootie! That must be some fancy medical term I am not familiar with, but she was smiling when she said it, so it's gotta be good! My heart is good and strong, lungs are clear and I have a twinkle in my eye. My only issue is I have giardia, so doc gave FM a course of Panacur for me to clear that up. I will need to be rechecked a couple of weeks after I finish that. I am a petite little thing and only weighed in at 13.5 pounds, so FM is trying to put a little meat on my bones. I am a little bit of a picky eater right now, so FM is trying everything. I must say she struck gold with the Natural Balance Food roll. Mmmmm, I'll do ANYTHING for that!
In my foster home, there is this sweet mamma named Nicole 13-351 who likes to mother me, and that is just fine with me! Here she is sticking close to me last Friday night after my spay surgery. My tummy was hurting so I just wanted to sleep. She would keep checking up on me. Once a mamma, always a mamma!
I love playing with toys and am even a good fetcher already! I run and get the toy and run as fast as I can back to a dog bed and pounce. FM says I am even good at amusing myself with my toys on my bed.
During the week while FM is at work, Nicole and I hang out at daycare with our friends Baylee and Joy and a bunch of 2-legged babies and kids. Let me tell you, it is work! Here I am doing the slide and the climbing wall at the park. Ok, I was taking a breather on the climbing wall, but I did finish -- going down that is. What is this, training for the Marines?!
Well, gotta hit the rack now and get some beauty sleep. The trumpeters for Reveille blow their horns really early around here!
Annie is an absolute sweetheart. She likes to be cuddled, but also is very active little girl. She quickly learned her name and readily comes when called and loves to follow the other dogs around. She particularly likes to play with mamma Nicole. If she tries to steal a toy from one of the residents that is not ready to give something up, they will give her a correction growl and she appropriately responds to the corrections and does not challenge that. She does not have any resource guarding issues with food or toys.
We are working on potty training and that will be a work in progress for a while, but she sleeps 7-8 hours at night and keeps her crate clean.
She is an incredibly social girl and loves her people, so much so she does put up a bit of a fuss when initially crated or baby-gated in the kitchen away from people. We are working on her settling herself down and learning to play with her toys and be ok with having her humans within sight but not within reach.
Soft and sweet, this little girl will quickly grow to a big dog with lots of energy to burn off. She will need a family that has a lot of time to devote to her especially in the first year to help her become a well-mannered member of the family and society. Puppies are a lot of work -- but so worth the time and energy put into them!
